Why should you watch Ad Astra legally?

The work involved in realizing this sci-fi film is seriously impressive. Working in over 100 degree temperature, the team headed to the desert where they filmed an incredible chase scene designed to look like it took place on the Moon. You can see the full behind the scenes work required for this film here. Every inch of the set pieces used to the spaceships are all based on designs used for real spaceships. The film crew literally had to build the sets twice - once horizontally, and once vertically for the zero gravity scenes. The chase scene really elevated the stakes of the film, and to see the work that went into realizing this scene gives you an appreciation for what the crew went through. There was even a huge amount of thinking behind the costumes used in the movie, because they had a really natural feeling to them. The director James Gray wanted the astronaut costumes to feel real and not fake, so the costume team had to think carefully about how to capture this feeling. We think this film achieves a very real feeling, which is impressive for any sci-film. The movie was shot on film, another deliberate decision by James Gray intended to make the movie feel more grainy and real rather than like most other sci-fi movies. Lastly, sound design was another very important aspect of the atmosphere that this movie tried to create. The sounds used were very practical - you'll hear everything from the creaking of the spaceship to the sound of electromagnetic waves.
